Recipes by Simmer

Recipes by Simmer is an intuitive recipe publishing tool for WordPress.

Professional recipe development is intuitive with the built-in items API of recipes by Simmer.

Upgrade to Simmer Pro for complete nutrition content for Google Structured Data output, in addition to complete aggregate star rating support and training and documentation resources for customers only.

Every WordPress theme handles recipes and custom post types differently. For customized support for your theme's code, purchase a Simmer Pro license for premium support from Simmer customer service and other benefits.

Simple UI

Add ingredients, step-by-step instructions, sub-headings, structured cook times, and a lot more all within a user-friendly drag and drop interface.

Food Data Discovery

Simmer automatically bakes semantic structure and schema.org microdata into the core of every recipe you publish. This allows Google to standardize and serve your recipes across a variety of devices and platforms. In addition, our easy to understand recipe index structure allows you to create endless libraries and collections of specific recipes.


Simmer is built with developers in mind. Utilize the many actions and filters detailed in the Developer API to customize Simmer to fit any project. Or check out the official Add-Ons Library to find an add-on that meets your project's needs. Because Simmer is an actively developed open source plugin on Github, any developer can build and sell an add-on or other 3rd party product for Simmer, and you can view our collaboration on such products at simmerwp.com/blog. Check back often for newly released products.
